daughter, carrying on in schools in america. he has my 100% support. >> often in these circumstances, people concentrate on the victim of the bullying without thinking beyond that in the immediate family. i wonder if you could describe for us how difficult the last year has been. >> yes, to a certain extent. some things, you simply cannot describe and cannot talk about. things like uncontrolled tears, the things that remind you, little things like going into a supermarket, seeing grapes, phoebe's favorite food, reaching out for them and then realizing. it keeps coming back and it keeps hitting you and keeps giving you immense distress. i can only imagine, how bad this is for me, how much worse it is for ann, thinking of the child she carried for nine months, breast-fed, brought up, and helped and that goes on every time there's another phone call or someone else mentioned it, it brings it all back. it hasn't been allowed to go away. we cannot let my little girl lie in her gave in peace because we are continually being pestered by the fact that she's a poster child for a campaign whic

on in america some we have money for endless wars and we can't take care of things at home. >> if you so disagree with the president's leadership on this, could you introduce a bill under the 1973 war powers act if it's passed, it would force u.s. forces to withdrawal from that conflict within 60 days unless the president comes to congress and getting approval. why not take that formal action? >> you know, there's a question as to whether the war powers abilities is even constitutional in that it does limit congress' express authority under article 1, section 8. and so we go 60 days down the road. we're in deeper in a war. if you don't have recognition that congress is a co-equal branch of government here, that congress has the first say as to whether or not we commit people to war, if you don't recognize that, then what we've done is we've set america on the path of even more adventurism, there are problems all over the world, yemen, bahrain, where there's conflict between 2k3w0e67govern people. if we keep intervening, we'll destroy our own nation. >> it's good of you to join me. thank

america is called to compromise or commitment with its on fate and, therefore, we are looking forward to president obama's words. we are all left-handed. we have many coincidences. we studied in harvard, both of us. we are sportsman. president obama continue to be a basketball player. i was in my time as well. i think the first lady of the u.s. is very good looking and president obama has said the same about the first lady of chile. there are plenty of coincidences but the most important is the one we'll find this afternoon and modestly if i could suggest to president obama, we hope to have partnership that is one where we have all responsibilities and n extensionalist alliance. extensionalist has never been enough to face major problems but a partnership of collaboration between latin america and the united states sharing values, principles, and a common vision. and that alliance should be comprehensive. it should reach out to the fields of democracy, freedom, rule of law, defense of human rights. and i think that we have to improve the democratic charter of oas. it should hopen up t

22nd and 23rd fatalities this year. a massive jump from last. who's killing cops in america? >>> war counsel? >> we better be in it to win it. >> sarah palin, john boehner, donald rumsfeld joins the line of critics against the president's acts in libya. could some of them actually have a point? >>> before we go any further, we should note, mrs. palin's definition of winning would mean colonel gadhafi goes and the peep of libya choose their own d destiny. on the ground and in the air, rebels fighting gadhafi's forces displays their own ideas of a manifest destiny using coalition forces, air strikes to continue attacking forces. the fighting's been intense. focus, city of ms. rat ta, where coalition bombs and missiles destroys tanks and artillery. in washington, the complaints against the president's strategy grows, as more politicians and pundits called on president obama to clearly define the u.s. mission in libya. a mission the white house insists should not be called a war. so, so far, the president has kept hisle. if it drops like a bomb, u.s. forces over libyaa are most

america's involvement even as president obama told brian williams that the u.s. has already accomplished its goals. >> now what we have done is accomplish what we set out to do at the outset, which is to make sure benghazi was not overrun and that thousands potentially of people were not killed. what we have also done is put gadhafi back on his heels. >> brian williams, of course, is the anchor and managing editor of "nbc nightly news" and joins me now. >> sometimes it is nightly noise. >> and most recently there is a lot of nightly concern about what is happening in libya what is happening with the rebels. you asked the key question. and asked whether or not we should be arming the rebels. let's look at part of that exchange. >> with all due respect, mr. president, watching the reportings of our two correspondents in libya, what it appears the rebels need is military equipment. some of their equipment dates back to world war ii. are you ruling out u.s. military hardware assistance? >> i'm not ruling it out. but i'm also not ruling it in. we're making an assessment, partly about what gad

's what america's all about. we need teachers in america. they sacrifice some of their presented to help their kids' future. they're special people. they believe in public affairs and getting involved. same way -- you know, illinois about four weeks ago had the worst blizzard we had in recent memory. we had workers out 12 hours at a shift in whiteout conditions plowing 16,800 miles of highway in illinois. they did it with great distinction. those are our best of the best. they're public servants. they deserve a decent pay. they deserve to have a union. i don't agree with everything the unions say. i negotiate with them. that's what america is all about. it's talking to each other. not just trying to kick the other guy in the shin and exterminate them. >> each night, chris matthews delivers an hour of fiery political debate and hard-hitting, take-no-prisoners interviews. don't miss "hardball with chris matthews" weeknights at 5:00 and 7:00 eastern only on msnbc, the place for politics. >>> meanwhile, as muammar gadhafi struggles to maintain power in libya, u.s. officials are calling him "

a terrorist. not from america, of course. is this what it takes to be a leader in the republican party? appeal to the haters who cannot accept the legitimacy of this president? on a parallel note, one of our pollsters tells us yesterday, it may be hard to understand why someone would jump off a cliff unless you understand they're being chased by a tiger. and that tiger is the tea party. in other words the gop is jumping off the political cliff right now and the tea party is that tiger chasing behind it. the latest example, a tea party leader calling for john boehner's defeat because he won't support the tea party's also after newt resigned after leading his party to a disaster after being reprimanded himself after being nominated on the family values republican party ticket? we'll find out. newt gingrich all but made it official today. on the subject of sex scandals, more evidence is surfacing that it could lead to an indictment for john edwards, misusing campaign funds or, in fact, using funds as -- that should have been a campaign contribution. finally, let me finish with the un-american eff

the geneva conventions. he criticized the system as a threat to america's safety. >> by any measure, our system of trying detainees has been a failure. meanwhile, this legal black hole substantially set back america's ability to lead the world against the threat of terrorism and undermined our most basic values. so make no mistake. we are less safe because of the way george bush has handled this issue. >>> and now he continues that bush policy. "the washington post" day nay millbank writes of the decision not only revoked the pledge to close gitmo within a year and contradicted the claim can't be based on simply what i or the executive branch order must be done. and those are some of the more kind words coming from the left. >>> defense secretary robert gates visiting helmand providence today, a pivotal battleground in southern afghanistan a day after flying into the country. yesterday gates met with afghan president karzai saying the u.s. is likely to begin withdrawing some troops from the country this summer. >> while no decisions on numbers have been made, in my view we will be well p

a failure. meanwhile, the legal black hole has substantially set back america's ability to lead the world against the threat of terrorism and undermined our most basic values. so, make no mistake, we are less safe because the way george bush has handled this issue. >> this latest development sets the stage for the prosecution of several 9/11 suspects including alleged master mere khalid shaikh mohammed, but the questions remain, can the u.s. realistically try terror suspects and close down the prison at the same time. richard wolffe is at the white house with the latest on this. let's start with why the reversal on the president's position here. >> reporter: well, this reversal has been in the work x for a couple of years now and it starts up with the politics of it. they turned against this president early in his term when democrats joined with republicans to cut off funding to transfer prisoners to a high security prison likely to be illinois, but once the politics changed and we saw it with the recent defense spending bill there was no physical way or a practical way they could really

there, very rapidly america is going to take up this leadership position that comes in part from a coincidence that happens because the united states is now chairing the asia-pacific group, the apec group of countries so there's a leadership role that will america is going to take on anyway because it's an asia-pacific leader. there are those deep concerns that what we've seen in terms of job growth would get stalled by the third largest economy in the world struggling. >> we continue to watch the escalating crisis going on there considering the nuclear power plant, the crippled nuclear power plant. i want to touch on with you americans in japan. what is the state department saying about any evacuations and working with the families who have questions here at home? >> there is consular work where they're trying to reach out to americans in japan, but there isn't talk of evacuations for now. remember, there is also the politics here of how america is seen by japanese officials as a very, very close ally. no closer ally to order evacuations or recommend evacuations at this stage wo
